Maui Mallard was a duck with nothing left. So he spent his very last dime and flew off to an island to lose himself. He was just a shell of the ducktective he used to be and that was just fine by him. He was all set to cash in his chips, buy the farm, take a dirt nap. . .well, you get the picture. It was time for him to crawl into a drink with a little umbrella and fade away.
Then she walked in. You know the type, flowing red hair, legs from here to forever and eyes as blue as ice. She said she needed his help. Her island was in danger because someone stole the idol of Shabuhm Shabuhm. If they didn't get it back in three days, the island was going to be destroyed. In all his years as a private ducktective, he had heard it all so he went back to his drink and told her to buzz-off.
That's when she told him about the money. Seems the islanders were pretty wealthy and they were willing to shell out some serious cash for the idol's return. Well nothing can bring you back from the edge like a wad of cash.
In Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow by Disney Interactive and Sunsoft. You are Maui Mallard, private ducktective and all-around tough duck. You must travel through seven different levels, from a scary mansion to the netherworld itself. Along the way, you will face spiders, Muddrakes, ninjas and many other evils. Never fear though, you have a weapon and a secret. You wield the vintage 1935 Westchester Bug Gun, yep, bug gun. Throughout each level are bug shells that you will need to collect and use as ammo. Be sure to get as many as you can because you're going to need a lot of them. Your secret is your ability to become a ninja! Just collect a few Ying-Yang coins and you'll be in business. There are also other special items that will help you on your quest to get back the Shabuhm Shabuhm idol.
Are you duck enough to recover the idol and save the island a recover the idol? You'd better hope so. But if you do get into trouble, just quack. You know how to do that, just put you bill together and QUAK! ~ Jason White, All Game Guide
